Every little place lately has been holding a Christmas Bazarr...many Churches do it to make extra money and there are also tons of craft sales. Do you shop at these little bazarrs and if you do what are you looking to buy? What handmade items interest you the most?

we also have bazaars here even if its not Christmas. ^__^ usually, we call it "tiangge" here where you can buy almost anything from kitchen utensils to personal accessories and gift items for a cheaper price. ^__^ there are also spots for native merchandises and personalized stuffs. its fun to shop at these bazaars and i actually go to these often to buy gifts for friends and relatives. ^__^

I love to shop at bazaars. I tend to look for handmade Christmas ornaments and crosses.

As a child and certainly when I was in my early teens I loved Christmas bazaars, I have bought my mum many craft items from bazaars, one I remember was a jewellery box with a little frog on it, it only cost me a couple of quid at the time, I guess the lady who sold it to me took pity on me, I didn't have much money then. As a teenager I was always buying raffle tickets to help out the church or charity that was running it. I nearly always won a prize! Guess I was lucky then. I won a big teddy bear, I won a cake, and I won a cutlery set as well, I think I had all my luck, it's gone now! They are a great way of meeting people too and getting you into a wonderful festive spirit and all for a good cause too! Perfect.

Yes I do. I actually went to one before Halloween and got a few things, some people made some Cleveland sports teams stuff and I bought a few things. It's nice stuff and you help other people out.

Yes. You can find specialty items and it's fun to see something different from what you can find in the stores.
